"I fish because I love to; because I love the environs where trout are found, which are invariably beautiful... because, in a world where most men seem to spend their lives doing things they hate, my fishing is at once an endless source of delight and an act of small rebellion; because trout do not lie or cheat and cannot be bought or bribed or impressed by power, but respond only to quietude and humility and endless patience...." --Robert Traver
here is a video I made from the trip. I hope you enjoy.
I'm diggin the music...native american?

Yeah native anmerican. I am part Cherokee and Blackfeet. I like the tranquil sounds of native american flute music. The music is actually by a local man, he came to the local children's hospital last year when my youngest was in and went room to room playing for the kids.
nice video and music Chris. Maybe one day I can attend one of these hangouts.

Who cares about showers, gourmet food, using flush toilets. Just keep on walking and being away from it all.
There are times that the only way you can do something is to do it alone.
I finally downloaded my pics from the camera, still have to edit them to be able to post here.
For those who have put off a visit to RRG, & are still undecided after the video & other pictures, I say: if you are within a few hours drive (its 2.5 hrs for me, without stops) GO. There are views there that I have seen literally dozens of times, & they still nearly stop my heart. The trails are well maintained, but not overly so. There are FANTASTIC formations; arches, rock houses, windows, a Indian staircase cut right into the rock, and my favorite - The Ohm Dome.
The swinging bridge is not firmly secured at either end, it floats in a sort of holder, so it can really get to swaying,,, Great FUN!
Maybe next time we can go to the Auxier Ridge area. Double arch, & courthouse rock are well worth the hike in.
When you have a backpack on, no matter where you are, you’re home.
PAIN is INEVITABLE. MISERY is OPTIONAL.
Thanks for the pictures. RRG is on my list of places to visit, but a single overnighter just doesn't seem to do it justice!~
Hey guys, I had a fine time. It's nice to finally attach a face to a webname too. I'm up for any future hangouts at the gorge, and I've got a new hammock on the way for my son.
